Golden in color with a white head. Nice clean lager aroma with floral hop notes and a hint of citrus. A bit of yeast and bread, maybe a touch of biscuit in there, too. Flavor is somewhat sweet with a touch of hop bitterness. Good floral notes, light citrus, and a bit of grass. Mild yeast and esters. Well done lager.

Can, pours brilliant dark gold with soapy white head. Good, classic lager aromas: grassy, a bit floral and biscuity, with the Cascade and NS hops really cutting through. Very full mouthfeel, with more biscuit malts and a twinge of lemon rind on the end. As advertised.

Golden in color qith a nice white head. Aroma is hopped like a pale ale with a touch of lager (yeast?) notes and light bready maltiness. Clean light hopped flavor with a lager finish. Quite refreshing and not bland, which is good!

Very simple yet rich flavor which consists of Floral Hops, Yeasts, Barley and a slight malty backbone. Perfect beer to drink on a hot summer day at the beach or just to kick back and relax

Tall boy can from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a deep, yellowish-amber color with a big white head. Aroma is malty, bready, corn. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, corn. It’s 95F outside today, and this beer hits the spot. A very tasty lager.

There’s really nothing positive to say about this beer, other than if New Belgium’s goal was to make a dumbed-down craft beer that mimics Michelob, then job well done. Really, guys. You should be ashamed. Bring your audience up; don’t lower your aim.
